Wards Signature 300

The machine also came with this padded carrying case, the first I've seen for a Brother machine.

Post-Script: This machine also came with two operation manuals, one for the model 300 and the other for a model 511.

Here's a video about this machine:



Here are several photos I took near Central Ave. in ABQ during my walk.

Fine looking typewriter. congratulations on the repair. You may be able to get the tops by adjusting both the upper and lower case fine adjustments a bit lower, but it can be tedious, and could lead to red lower parts if using a bi-color ribbon.

Carbon paper is your friend. I got some when my Royal Royalite was misbehaving. I, like you, have pondered using it when writing letters to keep a physical copy for reference. Thanks to you, I will probably follow through on that idea.

I am impressed with the way you problem solve and get old things working again. Keep up the experimentation and posting. I get a lot out of your presentations.

Nice find, and excellent mechanic-ing! (:
Few things are better than an unexpected typewriter, but match it with an evening of interesting tinkering and that just might do it.
Oh, don't forget to put that guy up on TWDB before you give it away :D
